That is not the fun I am looking for Yeow!

More along the lines of needing a dog to blame. Of course, I have Shrek...but he's usually the person I making problems for.

Have to agree, you can't knock beans! Great source of fibre
That and they're just so yummy!!

Suddenly this thread has become....like an episode of Star Trek...filled with gaseous anomalies.

Cooking with a DO in a fire pit works. Beans, chili, biscuits, cobbler. It sounds like the problem is with the size of the pit not the ingredients. When I've seen this done in the past, the pit was 12 inches deep and 2 or 3 feet across. A wood fire had been burning in it for hours cooking for a dozen ranch hands all day and a thick bed of coals filled the pit. Use a shovel to clear an opening in the coals, put the DO in, and bank coals around and on top.

Lots of people, and me several years ago. I was talking about a baked beans recipe though. Cooking beans with a buried DO is something I never got a handle on.
Actually, that may have been the OP's original request, info on cooking with a DO. We've moved beyond that now

Back in my hunting days we had a guy bring chili to deer camp that had macaroni in it. That did not go over very well

Squirrel Gun pretty much answered the open pit question.

Being able to make a good chili is one of those dishes I have on the list of "things one should be able to make." It is right up there with scalloped potatoes, roast chicken, roast turkey, spaghetti, cesear salad, and mac-n-cheese. There are things one should be able to make that are always TNT. The comfort foods in life. And, a dynamite homemade chicken noodle soup and just-like-grandma's apple pie. If you can make these things, you can survive in the kitchen.

We don't need a dog to blame, we have four pugs! One has a built in JATO for going up the stairs at night.

True. Don't cover with dirt. The coals need oxygen.
Lots of DO camp recipes call for it to be buried. I sure would like to know if they are venting it somehow. Not that I'm going to try it again

Wood ashes from a fair sized fire. Not something I'd want to try in a national forest. O.K on a sandy beach if you have enough driftwood.

My semi-chili chili:

Heat Oil in pot, add cumin seed and asafetida powder, cook til brown. add ginger pieces and big chunks sweet peppers, finely chopped spicy peppers, then add soy burger and break into pieces in pot. Add can of kidney beans, can of black beans ( or pinto beans, red beans, whatever) cook until stick to bottom of pot.

add corn, stir, and let water from corn pick up sticky flavoring from bottom of pan. when sticking again, mix in a couple blanched tomatoes or can of sauce, and some water, add salt and other spices as you like.

cook it down with a lid on until done.

**i add whatever veggies i want/have at the time... like fried potatoes, green beans, greens. makes for an interesting bowl of chili.


not sure what to call it, except chili.
